's poor performance last week. also, this is a campaign where president obama is running as much against paul ryan's ideas as he is against mitt romney. that elevates ryan as well. >> it seems clear in choosing chris van holland they will go against the first ryan budget, the first medicare plan and also the ryan book. they will go after the budget cuts and troo to tag mitt romney with the severity, using the term relatively, of the ryan budget cuts. >> right. rom uh any down played the ryan road map. keep in mind the first ryan budget plan included privatizing social security, at least to a certain extent. that's something ryan then dropped in his subsequent budgets. it was there and he was one of the advocates of the plan to put it in the market. secondly the medicare issue. those entitlements, we'll ha from biden about thursday. a lot of democrats think he dropped the ball not pushing the issues against mitt romney. joe biden will read ryan's book and go after those entitlements. >> up next, as mitt romney focuses on foreign policy we'll get a reality check on the challenges abroad.

couple weeks on libya you will see governor romney try to go after president obama on competence, on foreign policy but also on the broader issue of competence and leadership. >> and that brings you to the fourth point which is president obama ready for prime time? he's been president for four years. >> right. >> and he is well known for being able to give the great speech. >> right. >> is he ready for this combat? >> that's right. i mean, governor romney, the 20th in the course of the primary, this is a different level. president obama has nodd not ha one for some time. i think president obama has to be careful month to not come off as too harsh. hillary, you're likable enough, when the president can come off a little bit cold. so i think he's going to have to be careful on that. >> and finally, as we go, who brings up bill clinton first? will we see he's campaigning in new hampshire today so he's being deployed. >> i have no doubt that president obama will be happy to invoke bill clinton's support here. and i wouldn't be surprised if romney mentioned him either in terms of tryi

jokes aside, mitt romney gain soming ground after beating president obama in last week's debate. joining us to talk about the numbers our political editor paul steinhauser. that's pretty stuff. they know how to go there. are we talking about much of a balance here after the debate? >> well, one poll does indicate a small bounce. take a look at this, suzanne. this is from gallop. they do that daily tracking poll. it's a seven-day poll. look what they did. they split it up in two. on the left column, those are the three days prior to last week's debate in denver. you see according to gallop, among registered voters nationwide, the president a five-point advantage. with the sampling area, look at the right. those are october 4th through 6th. the three days after the debate, and gallop indicates it's all tied up there. yeah, i mean, this one poll does indicate that mitt romney did get a bounce. of course, we're going to see a lot more national polls, a lot more polls. most importantly in the battle ground states later today, tomorrow, and wednesday ask thursday. keep your eyes on those state

versus ryan here. a week from tomorrow, obama versus romney. and then those two again, two weeks from today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a

against somebody who shows up with totally new proposals that says, oh, he loves teachers and last week he said obama wants to hire more teachers and i'm not for that. that suddenly he's for -- he's not for cutting taxes on the top earners in this country, on the wealthy, and, of course, his whole proposal is denying that he has a proposal that would cut taxes by $5 trillion. there's a name to that proposal. he printed it out. the analysis that was done was based on a romney proposal that now he says he doesn't know what obama is talking about. it's utterly amazing, hard to debate somebody who has totally different plans than he really has said in the past. >> does this mean the president has fulfilled his promise to get unemployment below 8% and this isn't a one-term proposition? >> you know, you can't deny the numbers. 7.8% is, in fact, lower than 8%, and that's kind of the benchmark that the republicans have laid out. i'm sure they are extremely disappointed that there are better job numbers in the united states of america because they have been trying to sabotage any efforts, every day

: a top economics professor at princeton is now calling out president obama. for his comments at last week's debate and his common sense then, suggesting that governor romney's economic plan does not add up. here is what the president said. >> the fact is that if you are lowering the rates that we been described, governor, than it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it is arithmetic. megyn: now, this professor at princeton, upon whom the obama campaign has based its charge since then, they are citing this professor, harry rosen, to say that romney's plan is going to pinch the middle class -- he has come out and said, i have never said that and i do not believe that. joining me now is lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" and a syndicated radio host. it's not often that you see a princeton guide defending a candidate, but he is saying that i am not saying, this will not pinch the middle class. why is that? be. lou: based on a set of assumptions,

for him. he's had a bad couple of weeks. ever since the 47% comment which i think that be difficult for him. what he needs to do is kind of what obama did in 2008. when you look at when things started to move for obama, it was during the debates. specifically he made the case then right or wrong that he was a better steward of the economy than john mccain in troubled times. romney's got to make that case in 2012. >> little different when you're running against an incumbent. right? there's not a direct parallel there. >> look at the transcript. he was running against president bush. that these set of economic policies are wrong and i have a compelling vision. whether he can do that is another story. >> your colleague e.j. deion wrote journalists are in search of defining moments and game changers. by this standard, romney needs to game changer. obama can live quite happily without one. so do you think that mitt romney needs to have a big moment or if he is perceived to have won will at least give republicans some momentum. is that really the most reasonable thing to hope for? >> well

the obama team to say he is flip-flopping, this is something we've seen before, but now the governor, former governor, has about two weeks to sort of massage his message, and you see a real political game going on here. it's a real fight. >> yep. okay. jessica, thank you. appreciate it. >> american airlines now blaming passengers for jamming the lox that cause the seats on three flights to come loose. now, a spokeswoman says the lox, like the one shown here, got stuck after passengers "gunked them up" with spilled coffee and soda. the airline promises it won't happen again. the seats just the latest in a series of troubles for american. the company has also been dealing with labor issues, flight delays, and cancellations. >>> tainted medication in 23 states now being lirnked an outbreak of meningitis. we're going to take a look at what's being done to stop it and how you can protect yourself. ton about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how

't think anybody is doing anything deliberate, but i do think the one number that should concern the obama forces is the fact that he is -- if rasmussen is correct, that far below 50% because historically the undecideds in the last weeks, indeed sometimes it's the last few days of an election, the undecided us usually shift against the incumbent simply because the incumbent is the one they know the most about, and therefore the incumbent is the one that has the edge in having people make up their minds one way or the other. i know in my own first race, i was well behind my opponent who was at 48%. in the last ten days, i said, look, after all the money he's spent if he's only at 48%, that means 52% of people want somebody else, and it turned out i won. he got 48 1/2. connell: president is 48 in the rasmussen overall, he's up 2. and also up in the gallup tracking poll. >> i would say i think romney has had a rough few weeks here and i think it is pretty clear that the polls are moving in the direction of the president in ohio and florida, pennsylvania, and so on, iowa. but this is not -- th

will be made an issue in that debate to set up the presidential debate next week. it will be about whether we purposely withdrew security out of libya before this attack, and that is a serious thing and a big blemish for obama and biden. dagen: what say you? >> i think the same thing. there is a smoking gun potentially, and i underscore potentially, dagen, in what happened in libya. that could be the october surprise in the campaign. the obama campaign is trying to run out the clock. dagen: you have to worry about syria and turkey. >> you certainly do. dagen: which connell will be talking about coming up not to steal your thunder mcshane. doug schoen, john leboutillier, terrific to see you. you can catch them every monday on foxnews.com. it is every weekend on campaign insiders on the fox news channel. there you go. connell: not to steal your thunder at all because mitt romney is the one who hopes he has the thunder. he's speaking right now, there he is, live in virginia, talking about foreign policy, and that's reason we're going to bring up syria. our next guest is john bolton, one of the t
